This seems almost counterintuitive, as little effort is required to attend. However, there are many reasons why virtual meetings and conferences feel so exhausting. For one, they require an exorbitant amount of eye contact. No longer are you looking around a room as people speak; your attention is directed forward constantly.

Lifesize Video Conferencing
As the world celebrates the safe return to travel and meetings, many organisations are asking whether this is also the return to “normal” (in pre-pandemic terms) or if we have arrived at the dawn of a new age.
